Monardella stebbinsii (Lamiaceae ), a new species from the northern Sierra Nevada of Plumas County, California, is described and illustrated. Characterized by ovate leaves, multiple verticillasters per infiorascence, a matlike habit, reddish papery bracts, and purplish-red leaves with a soft white pubescence, the species is not closely related to any other species of the genus. The new species is apparently restricted to the central portion of a serpentine outcrop located north and east of the confluence of the North Fork of the Feather River and its East Branch.
